Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Diffusion Tensor Imaging
    This imaging technology, performed by neuroradiologists, can help our surgeons better determine the location of tumors for removal.

  • MR Perfusion
    MR perfusion is an imaging procedure that helps to distinguish treatment-related changes from recurrent brain tumors.

  • MR Spectroscopy
    MR spectroscopy is an imaging procedure that helps distinguish brain tumors from other diseases such as abscess, stroke and multiple sclerosis, and also helps the neurosurgeon select the most appropriate place to biopsy certain brain tumors.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Myelogram
    A myelogram, also known as myelography, is performed to assess the spinal cord, subarachnoid space or other structures for abnormalities, particularly when another type of examination, such as a standard X-ray, is inconclusive.

  • Oculoplethysmography
    If you are fainting due to blood loss to the brain or are at risk of a stroke, our neurologists and radiologists utilize oculoplethysmography to assist your physician in developing an accurate diagnosis and appropriate follow-up care.

  • Sinus Xray
    Our physicians use sinus X-rays to determine if you have sustained an injury or have other problems in the sinuses, to assess inflammation or infection or to determine the location and size of a tumor or other mass.

  • Skull Xray
    X-rays of the skull remain valuable for evaluating the fractures of the bones of the skull and detecting other conditions of the skull and brain.
